This library has 240 years. It was founded on January 9th of 1777. His actual building (that appears in the images) was founded on July 20th of 1938. In this building began the TV in Colombia. In the basements of the library was located the Televisora Nacional de Colombia and here for many years the mainly TV shows of the colombian TV were recorded. Today in the basements we can find the Newspapers store. The mainly press of the country is here, in the patrimonial library of the country.

More photos are available online here and here.

I hope you like it!
